it's your day

Hi there , welcome to my room . Might be freezing outside but definately warm in here .
Hope that all is well with you and yours .
Special thoughts today to those who have dear ones not so well . It is hard to be with a loved one when you know that there is no more that can be done for them , apart from making sure that they are as comfortable as they can be . My friend Fran 's Mother is not expected to live much longer and I know Fran is with her as much as she can be and when not , she is with her in spirit . Fran please know that you are in my thoughts .
On a happier vein ..
just a quick sharing of a workshop card
which I will enter into challenges ...

front . White card base . Papers, punched leaves , flowers and SU button  from my stash ..which by the way just isn't getting any smaller !! The image is from KaiserCraft and water coloured with SU watercolour pencils .

Thank you for calling in and to those who leave comment , know that I love that you took the time .
My thought for today ..
                                                      A friend is one to whom one may pour out
                                                          all the contents of one's heart,
                                                            chaff and grain together,
                                                          knowing that the gentlest of hands
                                                       will take and sift it , keep what is worth keeping
                                                          and with a breath of kindness
                                                              blow the rest away .
                                                                                   -- Arabian Proverb.
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
